The United States could see its homeless population increase by 40% to 45% this year, according to an analysis by an economics professor at Columbia University.

The report was published by Community Solutions, a nonprofit organization to end homelessness.

More than 800,000 Americans will experience homelessness by this summer if it follows unemployment trends — the way it did in the earlier part of the century, said Professor Brendan O’Flaherty, also a former aide to Newark Mayor Kenneth Gibson.
